My family and I live in a beautiful rural desert setting away from traffic and over a quarter of a mile from our nearest neighbor. Because we live so far out, we do worry a bit about our safety. If someone comes up in the middle of the night, we want to know!
We know feel quite safe and protected since we received the 1byone Wireless Motion Sensor and Detector Alert System to review. It has put our minds at ease a bit, as we now know when someone is approaching the house. Most likely it's my husband coming home after work, but we never know. We have been surprised by people, most of them riding their off-road vehicles, wondering if anyone was home. At night, motion lights do not work with these people. Those lights just come on automatically so no one may be home. We have to step outside to show our presence, and best with something that looks like a firearm. I would rather have them further away from the house rather than at our doorstep when we finally know someone is out there, and this wireless driveaway alert system is giving us fair warning.
The Wireless Motion Sensor and Detector Alert System from 1byone consist of the following:
- 1 x Receiver
- 1 x Motion sensors
- 1 x Instruction Manual
- Wall Plugs
This is really just a starter system as can be added onto with more motion sensors that are sold separately. These sensors are not only good for driveways, but you can use them for doors and windows, too. We only have one way in and one way out, so just the one receiver is perfect for us.
This is a six-way alarm system where each zone can be equipped with up to 10 PIR or Magnetic Parts Accessories, grouped into 6 zones. Additional motion detectors, window and door sensors can be purchased separately as add-ons to the receiver.
You will find that this system as a reliable range up to 150 meters from wireless motion detector to receiver, Sensor Motion detecting range of up to 5-8 meters, transmits a wireless signal to the compatible receiver when motion is detected. Just someone walking by 20 feet away will ding this off.
Siren sounds with a volume up to 80dB (within 0.5 meters). You can adjust the volume with three different settings of high to low. I like that I can set the device to either alarm and flash or only flash. With the auto-learning code button on the sensor, it is much easier to pair with new receivers. It can get pretty loud. Even on the lowest volume, we can hear it all over the house.
This product differs because of the useful panel to show you which area has been triggered. The 1, 2, 3 zone issue three different alarms, rings once. The 4, 5, 6 way issue the same as 1, 2, 3 way, but sounds twice. The system has an under voltage display, When the battery voltage is low, Six Red LED on the alarm will blink at the same time, suggesting owner to replace the battery. It can monitor the sensors and the battery condition automatically. You can add your own DC 5V Power to the indoor unit so you don't need to purchase batteries.
I guess the only downside to this device is that it can get pretty loud and at night, it startles you awake. Since we do have a lot of wind, it can pick up a tree that is around 20 feet away, and sound off when the wind gets strong enough to move the branches. It does go off quite a bit, and I find that the kids will turn off the sound and leave only the light flashing.
